Whew, went out of town and am just now getting back into the flow of things.
So I was thinking about rejection. I have two finished manuscripts that I keep working on. I began to wonder if perhaps I'm afraid to actually send them out into the big, wonderful world of publishing. Then I decided no, they just need work.
But it's important to never let fear rule you. Let it speak. Consider what it is saying. Weigh it. Then make a decision and move forward.
So I'm revising one manuscript and getting beta readers for the other.
This is definitely a scary thing. Writing is subjective and I know some people won't like mine. But what if everyone doesn't? That would be a bitter pill.
And yet, I would still write. I'm not sure there's anything that could stop me. In sixth grade my class did a book project and I wrote my first story. I've never stopped writing since and if no one else likes it . . . well, I do.
Writing is a pleasure. Most of the time, lol.
I've been hearing this quote alot lately and I think it bears repeating.
"Nevah, nevah give up."
So said Winston Churchill.
